Our EZ Photo Resizer Software makes it so easy to resize your photos! Just enter your size, crop your image, and add to the page for printing.

What is a Seal-Itz strip?

A Seal-itz strip is a super strong double sided adhesive sheet that is used for making glass photo jewelry. It is used for sealing the glass to the photo, and you can also use them for sealing the glass covered photo into the frame.  Check out our blog post about how to use Seal-itz strips for more info!

What is a Krystal Clear-itz cover?

A Krystal Clear-itz cover is a self-adhesive acrylic clear covering for making photo jewelry. It is different from glass in that it does not use a Seal-itz strip to attach to the photo (although you can use a Seal-itz strip to seal your Krystal Clear-itz covered photo into the frame).

I'm looking for some ideas on how to start my own photo jewelry making business… Do you have any advice for me?

Many of our customers start out small making photo jewelry for themselves, but quickly find out that everyone they know wants some too! Wearing your photo jewelry around is hands down the most effective (not to mention cost-effective!) way of advertising. No one will have seen anything like it before, and they will ask you to make some for them, too! This is your opportunity to make a sale. Give some business cards to your photo-jewelry-wearing friends and family, because word will get out quickly once all of their friends see them wearing it. Before you know it, you will have a huge base of clients willing to pay you to make them photo jewelry. Many artists and photographers also love photo jewelry because it is a unique and fun way to expand their businesses. Everyone has children, grandchildren and pets and love to show off their photos! You can make money making custom photo jewelry!

What kind of photos can I use for photo jewelry making?

Any digital image will work. Just insert any JPEG image (this is the standard format for most of your digital images) into our EZ Photo Resizer program. You can also use any logo or picture in JPEG format from your website, just right click the web image and choose "save picture as" and save on your desktop, and then insert into our program. If you want to use a photograph that is not digital, we recommend getting it scanned and digitized at your local photo center. If you happen to have a file in another format that you are unsure how to use, just send us an email and we are happy to help you with that.

What if I want to put something else into the photo frame besides a picture? Can I do that?

Absolutely! We have many customers that use our blank photo pieces for other craft projects such as inserting pieces of fabric, lace, buttons, beads, cameos, and more.
